SOURCE: Bad thermistor easy to replace?

It is not "easy" but it is not rocket science either. You will have to have the unit pulled out from where it is installed to have access to the back of the unit to replace the thermsitor correctly (it feeds to the back through a hole in the upper right (as seen from the front) and follows the refrigerant tubing to the mechanical area where it connects to the control board on terminal #s 4 and 5. The thermistor itself is connected the the back of the evaporator plate. Depending on what year (and how accurate the assembly was) it should be on the right wing. Sometimes it was connected to the upper middle section of the evaporator plate like it is on the 6CAR. The repair can be done with common hand tools by someone who is average to above average handy. When you order the part, it should come with instructions.

There is short-cut for those units that are hard to remove from where they are installed but should only be used as a last resort since it requires cutting and splicing the thermsitor leads which if not done with care can lead to accelerated failure of the new thermsitor and/or control box.

Drop me a line if you need further assitance. - Subdriver

I have Marvel 6bar beverage refrigerator that suddenly stopped cooling- any suggestions on how to fix- I am trying to avoid paying a couple hundred dollars for repair thank you for your time


If light work but not running at all, then change the temp control (thermostat). If compressor and condenser fan motor are running but not cooling, then you have sealed system problem

Does not chill drinks


you wrote that the wine cooler "only cools to 12 degrees minimum" I don't understand the problem?
12 degrees is really cold, in fact its freezing.

Marvel 6bar-bd gets too cold - explodes soda can


I also have the same problem. Our Marvel 6BAR runs continuously until the beverages freeze. A technician came out and replaced the thermistor under warranty. It was a simple repair that anyone could do. This solved the problem for about another 18 months, but it has returned. I will now search for this part and do the repair myself. It only takes a few minutes to do.

Marvel 6BAR stopped cooling


The dip switches define the temp range. You have it set to the warmest. Try moving the next dip switch to move the range cooler.

Fan in cooling compartment


The fan inside the unit should run all the time, this insures a more constant temp throughout the compartment by keeping the air moving.
